Inland Empire, Ca. – DAUM Commercial Real Estate Services brokered two industrial acquisitions in the Inland Empire, encompassing a combined 112,671 square feet for a total consideration of over $13.1 million. Chris Migliori, Executive Vice President in DAUM Commercial’s Newport Beach office, represented the buyers in both transactions.
“Despite a record level of new industrial construction in the Inland Empire, vacancy rates in the region are expected to remain in the 4 percent range. Demand continues to exceed supply,” explains Migliori. “Smaller industrial buildings in the 40,000 to 60,000 square-foot range have vacancies below 2.5 percent. Increasing land values and construction costs are driving up rents and sale prices.”
Migliori notes that small-size warehouses can be double the cost-per-square-foot to build, resulting in tremendous competition for existing product.
The two recent acquisitions include:

“The buyer plans to complete interior and exterior upgrades within the next week,” says Migliori.
Migliori will oversee leasing for the property, and notes that the building is well-suited for warehousing and distribution, and could also be easily adapted to light manufacturing.
The property features six dock-high loading doors, 2,000 amps of power, and a fully installed high pile racking system, as well as convenient access to the I-15 and State Route 91.
